Alleged OnePlus X event poster leak reveals the eventual design and price tag

The eventual 5" OnePlus X will be the company's first attempt to diversify its smartphone line, which so far consists of two 5.5" handsets - the OnePlus One and OnePlus 2. The OnePlus X is expected to sport a 1080p display, housed in a trendy 140 x 69 x 6.9 mm chassis, sport a 13 MP rear camera, an 8 MP camera on the front, 3 GB of RAM, and 16 GB/32 GB of expandable storage space. 

The only ho-hum part is the eventual Snapdragon 801, which isn't exactly futureproof. ZUK's premier Z1 also landed with this chipset, so the OnePlus X won't be without precedent if it comes with Snapdragon 801 indeed, and yet we can't shake the surprise that companies are still using this silicon towards the end of 2015. In any case, after some allegedly doctored images tried to imagine what the OnePlus X will look like, now the alleged front of the device has been tipped by a OnePlus event invitation for October 29th, when the munchkin is expected to be unveiled. 

The poster also reveals the price tag of the phone, which at 1699 yuan ($267) can't exactly be called cheap for the Chinese startup standards, and is a tad higher than the previously rumored $220 tag. It's not clear if this pricing is meant for the 32 GB version, as there is one more number of 1099 yuan ($173) bandied about, though from the description it seems that the lower price will be for event attendees, likely in limited numbers. In any case, the grand unveiling is just a few days away, when we will know exactly how much the eventual OnePlus X will cost.

Meh.... There are new 32 GB Nexus 6's on eBay that are $312 delivered. I bought a manufacturer refurbished one for $270 delivered. This price point isn't very compelling for a phone rocking 2 year old hardware.

All these so called leaks and publishing the price by 'mistake' are just the new stunt companies are using to test the waters before they decide on an official price

Snapdragon 801 > Helio X10. GPU of the X10 is not high end level, and the 801 can still performs greatly.

"and yet we can't shake the surprise that companies are still using this silicon towards the end of 2015." One would have expected phonearena which is supposed to consist of knowledgeable people in the phone world to know SD801 is a very good processor even by today's standard. It is better than the SD6xx and on a FHD device, it performs excellently.

I still fail to understand how they are able to come up with new models when they have not even fulfilled all the invitations for their "2016 flagship killer" yet. Their reasoning behind the invitation system is that their production capacity is small. This puzzles me.
